ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The title song "Ask John Steinbeck" sets the tone of this two disc set by joining the famous turtle in the third chapter of Steinbeck's novel, The Grapes Of Wrath in making his way across a lonely South West two lane while seeing how humans behind the wheel react to him. Other songs ask questions, comment, point to something to think about. "Seven Trains" is a metaphor for the Seven Deadly Sins. "Africa" takes a look at ten thousand years of exploitation of the continent by, well, pretty much everyone else. "The Center Holds" talks about how everyone needs that one central strong thing in their life when all the rest is not so much. "The Bells Of Saint Mary's" looks for a constant amid all the change.
The 14 songs in the set are reprised by having a whole other set of musicians reimagine each of them done in an alternative take... without the preconceived notion of getting to hear the first arrangement. Its all about the journey..
This comprises discs 10 and 11 of Jim Ballard releases to date.
